Mohammad Irfan1023513.50424010
0.1 to AJ Finch, and he's gone first ball! He slanted that full and wide, and he went hard at it but the ball sliced off the face of his bat and Ahmed Shehzad takes a good catch at point, diving to his right. 0/1
Wahab Riaz1006126.10358040
45.5 to SA Abbott, another one, he charges out, and wants to deposit this short of a length ball down the ground, but only hits it as far as long on. 221/7
49.5 to MG Johnson, Riaz on target finally this over, Johnson makes room, swings and misses, and Riaz hits leg stump with a length ball. 253/8
Zulfiqar Babar903513.88312100
32.1 to GJ Maxwell, this time he is gone, skips out, and lofts it, he didn't appear to be sure what to do with it, and appeared to have got a touch too close to the pitch, Irfan does not make any mistake as he slides to take it at long off. 158/4
Anwar Ali805206.50163110
Shahid Afridi1004634.60263000
18.1 to DA Warner, the breakthrough, Afridi does it, Warner backs away to pull, but hits it low to midwicket, who snaps it up happily. 86/2
40.3 to JP Faulkner, a much fuller delivery and Afridi has another, but Faulkner will review, tossed up ball, dipping and drifting in, Faulkner pushes forward, the impact is pad first, on middle and off, ball tracker says that is hitting the inside of off, and Faulkner will walk back. 196/5
44.1 to SPD Smith, charges out, Afridi bowls it full and wide, Smith reaches out and slams it straight to long off. 216/6
Fawad Alam302317.6620100
25.5 to GJ Bailey, goes for a repeat, and Afridi does the star-man pose after taking a blinder. That wasn't quite as full, and it turned away and he hit it way up in the air. Afridi turned back from short midwicket and ran towards the 30-yard circle and tumbled forward as the ball dropped into his hands from over his shoulder. 123/3

Mitchell Johnson712433.42323030
2.2 to Ahmed Shehzad, goes for a swing and edges to slip! The length ball with room outside off made Shehzad drive hard at it, he got a thick edge and it went straight to Smith at second slip at waist height. 9/1
13.6 to Asad Shafiq, the short ball barrage after spin has worked, there is a clear sound as Shafiq shuffles and tries to play this bouncer down the leg side, and Haddin goes up immediately, was too quick for Shafiq, brushed the glove on the way to keeper. 63/4
29.6 to Anwar Ali, that'll do, Johnson strikes with a pitched up delivery, Anwar tries to blaze a drive, only nicks it through to keeper. 125/7

Sean Abbott502515.00153000
23.5 to Shahid Afridi, Abbott has Afiridi as his first ODI wicket, short of a length again, Afridi has another big swipe, sends it soaring into the deep, there is a man on the midwicket boundary and he takes it safely. 102/6
Nathan Lyon1023323.30363000
12.1 to Sarfraz Ahmed, this is a strange dismissal, and Haddin has done so well to hang on to this, Sarfraz falls by the sweep, was through with the sweep a touch early as this offbreak spun in sharply from outside off, and it went straight to the keeper off the back of the bat, hit Haddin's chest first, and he clung on. 59/2
12.2 to Misbah-ul-Haq, and leg slip sends back Misbah first ball, two in two for Lyon, who pushes this through much fuller, Misbah nudges at it, and it flies off the inside edge to Warner's right, and he gobbles it one-handed. 59/3
Glenn Maxwell612924.83240310
21.4 to Fawad Alam, Alam had let the pressure build and build, and now tries to force a cut, he was moving forward initially and wasn't in a great position to play the shot, Warner dives forward at point to send him back. 90/5
33.1 to Wahab Riaz, Maxwell has another, dives to his right to complete the catch, Riaz leans forward to a flighted one and chips it back at the bowler. 137/8
